Religious celebrate in Uganda

 |  NCR Today

I wonder what stereotypes you have of the religious in Africa? I had some when I came, imagining them, perhaps, as a bit stodgy. That was until one of the first nights when they began spontaneously dancing along with some entertainers who were showing some cultural dances. In Africa (I should have known better) music touches everyone, and the livelier the music the deeper the impact.

I make a brief video of a dance one night and placed it on YouTube. These is not Lady Gaga, but, well, decide for yourselves.
